Lisa was beautiful, vivacious, feisty and full of life. She had a laugh that everyone who knew her loved to hear. She loved telling a story or a joke with her hands in the air and her laugh being heard by all.
She loved boating, traveling, wine tasting, Teddy, her husband Frank and her family. She was always helping friends with issues that they were dealing with. She was a great listener, mother, wife, daughter and friend.
Lisa’s last few years were spent loving and caring for their 5 lb. Maltese, Theodore Bearington Skaw III, whose short name was Teddy Bear and is known as Teddy. Lisa could be seen brushing him on the back of their boat, pushing him in his stroller or hiking with him in his front pack. Yes, she was one of those moms.
